Students at four University of Pittsburgh regional campuses will not see their tuition increase next year. The board made the announcement yesterday that impacts the approximately 7,000 students at the campuses in Bradford, Greensburg, Johnstown, and Titusville. Chancellor Mark A. Nordenberg says, "Particularly in these difficult times, the University is sensitive to the difficult task of balancing our own financial uncertainties with the challenges faced by families who are budgeting to meet tuition expenses. As a result, we are redoubling our efforts to limit tuition increases." Tuition rates for the main campus will be released this summer. Nordenberg says, “Some increases [at the main campus] seem inevitable, but we will do our best to temper them."
